Navigating High Drug Costs: Study Finds Consumers Want Their Physician to Lead
RazorMetrics, an innovative healthcare technology company, recently conducted a consumer opinion survey asking about drug costs and found some surprising results. Despite the explosion in consumer-oriented drug savings options – mail-order pharmacy, discount cards, etc. – healthcare consumers want their physician to take the lead on lowering drug costs. The survey found that 80% of respondents would prefer their physician be the one to choose a lower-cost drug for their prescription and do so automatically.
